PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

BBC Earth: The Blue Planet: Deep Trouble Viewing Activity

For this lesson you will need access to The Blue Planet episode ‘Deep Trouble,’ the DVD is not included, but this episode may be available on YouTUBE as it was at the time of listing. The episode runs for approximately 50 minutes.

This episode can be found in the BBC Earth box set entitled ‘THE BLUE PLANET: A Natural History of the Oceans.’ This DVD box set contains 4 dvds.

In this episode one of the producers of the series, Dr. Martha Holmes looks at the human impact on the seas. She dives to explore many marine habitats around the world.

I made this viewing activity as a part of my multi-age unit called ‘Our Ocean Planet.’ I wanted my students to see the devastation caused by humankind, rather than just on a website or in a book.

This viewing sheet does not have questions for students to answer, but nine focus points for students to look out for during the episode.
Students take notes under these focus points which include:

.Methods of fishing
.Endangered – the figures
.Fish consumption
.Deep Sea Fishing
.Biological Diversity Decreasing
.Coral Reefs Under Threat
.Ocean Floors
.The Power of the People
.Solutions

This documentary is fabulous for showing students first hand, the man-made threats placed on our oceans and seas.

Answers for this viewing activity are included.
